In 2009, Equal Justice America launched its Pennsylvanians for Equal Justice campaign to increase legal services to the poor by creating additional Law Student Fellowships in the state, putting more law students to work with Pennsylvania legal aid organizations.
Funding for EJA Fellowships for Drexel University, Duquesne University, Penn State, University of Pittsburgh, Villanova University and Widener University law students derive from our Pennsylvanians for Equal Justice campaign. (To be eligible for an EJA Fellowship, students from these schools must find placements with legal aid organizations in Pennsylvania.)
The following law students have received Equal Justice America Fellowships since our launch of Pennsylvanians for Equal Justice. Your support will help us expand our program to put more law students to work in Pennsylvania on behalf of the poor.
(Equal Justice America is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation unaffiliated with any law school.)
